In Operation Owl, we revisit the world of the Grimm’s fairy tale, “The Owl.” The gist of the story is that there is an owl in a barn, the owl terrifies the property owner, and so rather than try to get the owl out of the barn, the townsfolk burn the barn down to rid it of this “terrible beast.” Those who enjoy romance novels will probably really enjoy this novel. It definitely had its humorous parts. In places, I found there to be a bit too much giggling and romance-like introspection – but overall, it was a fun read.

Five years ago, Maya Jain kissed her best friend only to have him run out of her dorm room and leave the state. When he shows up in Washington, D.C., a wanted fugitive sought after by every branch of the US government, she can’t bring herself to ignore his plight. As their physical relationship picks up where it left off, she decides it’s time to make him see her as more than the bespectacled, bookish girl he once called “Owl.”
After being accused of espionage and treason, Zack Strong needs a forensic accountant to help clear his name. Not knowing who he can trust, this white-hat hacker has no choice but to ask his former best friend and math tutor for help. Together they unravel a cyber conspiracy at the Barn, an NSA facility tasked to intercept electronic communications. But as they traverse the nation’s capital to avoid capture, Maya insists on letting their simmering sexual tension take its natural course. Even though he’s never been able to shake the memory of their one kiss, he refuses to let her give up her life for a man with no future.
